I have an Audio Magic PEA thanks to Brownsfan. Over the weekend I turned my system on only to find the soundstage and other attributes weren't up to par. After pondering what the heck happened, I checked the light on the back of the PEA and learned the batteries were dead. To use Audiooracle's word, the moral to my message is the PEA's are "transformational".
Jerry Ramsey has a dedicated following for a reason. He also has his detractors among those who haven't tried any of his products. It has been my experience that he tends to understate the impact his products can make. When he says the differences are not subtle, rest assured that is what you will find.
Sabai, My understanding is different. I understand the Monoliths are just extra large peas, but perhaps I am wrong.
As for what exactly the PEAs do, its a little hard to properly articulate. I think RAks description above captures it. When you find them turned off, you know something is wrong, and when you turn them back on, you find things turned to what somehow just sounds right.
They take a while to work. When I got the first one, I put it in place and turned it on. Didn't hear much to get excited about. I took the dog for a walk, came back and it was OMG, what happened? I proceeded to add additional peas one at a time. Three seems to do it for me. My peas aren't going anywhere.
I have found that these room treatment devices. Those that produce a fuller more warmer sonic change tends to be more forward i.e. more presence regio.
The Acoustic revive doesnt do this as the sound can sound more defined yet a neutral effect which opens out the soundstage without giving the impression of forwardness to the sound.
Anyone compared the PEAs, monoliths to other devices?
Sabai, Sorry, I must have missed your post from the 14th. I've been asked this before, and I am at a loss to put my finger on how to describe the sonic difference these make. The best I can do, is tell you that these substantially increase the "rightness." When they are turned off, somehow things just aren't right. I know that is not very satisfactory, but that is the best I can do. I have 3 standard PEAs, which were added one at a time. This may be a good way for most people to go. I got one at retail and bought 2 used from other AG members, so this was a very cost effective tweak.
